About the Map

Kittatinny Trails Map 2016, 7th Edition 
List price: $13.95 ISBN: 978-1-880775-88-2
New York-New Jersey Trail Conference (October, 2016)


Featuring trail mileage numbers on the face of the map and a major change to the trail system in Stokes State Forest, the revised 7th edition of the Kittatinny Trails map set is a significant update over the previous edition.  This four-map set includes more than 275 miles of marked trails within the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, High Point State Park, Stokes State Forest, Worthington State Forest, and other nearby parklands.

The trail mileage numbers provide distances between trail junctions and significant trail features to make it easier to plan trips and navigate the trails safely.  In Stokes State Forest, the new 17-mile Blue Mountain Loop Trail is shown, along with other changes to trails as part of this trail system change.  Many additional corrections and changes, including relocations of the Appalachian Trail and changes to features along the Delaware River, have also been made to make this edition of the Kittatinny Trails map set the most accurate we have ever published.

Five inset maps provide additional detail for popular park destinations.  Along the Appalachian Trail, sources of drinking water, shelters, side trails, and parking access areas are identified.  Additional map features include 20-foot contour lines, UTM gridlines, green overprint for public access lands, parking areas, viewpoints, camping areas, and other points of interest.  As always, the maps are printed in vibrant color on waterproof, tear-resistant Tyvek.

In addition to being great trail maps, this set also includes a number of features useful for traveling along the scenic Delaware River.  River mileages, access points, and rapids are shown, and river campsite locations have been updated.

At only $13.95 ($10.46 for Trail Conference members), this comprehensive map set is a must-have for exploring the vast parklands along the Kittatinny Ridge and adjacent section of the Delaware River.
